5 Things We’re Excited to Eat and Drink This June

This month, we’re looking forward to Broadway musical-inspired cocktails, pho grilled cheese sandwiches, samosa enchiladas and more.

Dill Pickle Caesar from Eau Claire Distillery

Eau Claire Distillery recently launched this new canned cocktail to coincide with National Caesar Day. Handmade in Turner Valley, the drink consists of Eau Claire’s own vodka, as well as dill pickle juice and spices. Pick up some cans directly from the distillery, online and at local retailers.

Pho Grilled Cheese from Một Tô

Pho Dau Bo‘s new sister restaurant brings pho and a grilled cheese sandwich together to create one memorable dish. The grilled cheese is filled with beef, caramelized onions, basil and cheese and comes with a shot of pho broth to dip it in.
